The dog ate my pattern!

Remember when someone used the excuse the dog ate my homework and the teacher thought "Right, sure it did,"  Well, if I was a teacher, I might start believing the excuses students give for absent homework.  I had been working on this pirate bandanna hat pattern and I had the pattern all written up in pencil on my paper and somehow we left and someone,(I'm not sure who!) left the back door open and the dog pushed it open and came in.  I had my crochet project and pattern sitting on the downstairs couch and when I came home, guess what? Yep, the dog had chewed parts of it up. Boy was I mad! but not as mad as this time. (Go here, if you want to read about this disaster.)
I tried to piece the pattern together but parts of it was missing, (I wonder if that dog has a belly ache?)
It's not that I can't remember how I made the pattern, it's just that it is so hard to write down exactly how I made it!  Making whatever is the fun part, but making a pattern for someone else is hard!  So I had to remake it because you have to write it down as you make the pattern.

It turned out so cute and Saturday I had the perfect model for this cute hat and eye patch.

I'm not sure if he likes one eye being patched, but it is adorable.

Grandma, you are so strange.

Love those little pirate rolls.

"That's better, I can see now!"

I'm sure this pirate will be a hit with all of the ladies!

"I love you Grandma!"
There was one good thing that came out of the dog eating the pattern.  I was able to make another hat and this time I made it for a BIG pirate!

Aren't these two just the best pirates you've seen all day!

"Give me a pirate face!"

Kind of better.

Now, there's your pirate face!
Love it and thanks to my great models!

Ahoy me matey, this makes me want to have another baby, and my last words at the hospital after number 5 was I never wanted to see any of them ever, ever again! Love this.
